I was Told There'd Be Cake: Essays by Sloane Crosley

We will be talking about I was Told There'd Be Cake: Essays by Sloane Crosley over drinks and food.  I have attached a link below if you need more info or want to buy a copy. 



I Was Told There'd Be Cake: Essays

Please note the attendance policy below as we want to be polite to the venues that we use.

Group Guidelines:

1) 21 and over plz - The books we may be reading (and the bars we plan and meeting to discuss the books in) mean that we need people to be at least 21 to participate.

2) "No homework" - We don't have set questions, it's open discussion. You won't get in trouble if you haven't read the book, but at least make an effort so you'll have something to talk about. Read the back cover at a bare minimum! ;-) If you haven't read it come anyway and hear about why you should, but be prepared for spoilers.

3) Be respectful. Be polite about any views or topics that may come up in the course of discussing a book, some of the books we might read are kind of strange or may riff on religion, politics, society, etc. Just take said books and our discussions with a sense of humor and a grain of salt and we'll all get along fine.

 

There is a new attendance/RSVP policy in an effort to be polite to the venues that we use.

If you "NO SHOW" (That means you don't change your RSVP status before the event) more than twice you will be kicked out of the group. You will have up to 9 am the day of the event to change your RSVP status to "NOT GOING". Those who wish to RSVP the same day as the event may still do so, however if you no show you will still be subject to the attendance rule. Exceptions can be made for those who contact me.

Please remember to RSVP correctly and to cancel with enough time so that we can give the venue an accurate number of people that will be attending the event.

      No blue umbrella, but the name of the great book on wine and Sicily is Palmento, by Robert Camuto. Enjoy.

    Good, easy read. She is witty and cunning in her style. I like an author that can amuse me and keeps me guessing.

    not as good as "Let's Pretend...." but still entertaining.

      I totally agree, and was pointing out some of the spots where I found Sloane writing a bit "like" Jenny, but still not quite the same, still some was very good :)

    I prefer an immersive series in which to lose myself, but I read almost everything.
